Does Anyone Else Experience Pins And Needles Sensations? Could It Be The Meds Or PD?

Yes I have recently experienced a spinning head but sometimes it can feel like lead. I also get peripheral neuropathy in both feet and legs, my neurologist said a lot of his patients with PD experience this and he beloved it is because the rigidity of the muscles in PD restricts the blood supply to them thereby causing the burning and tingling sensations. He also admitted that quite often pain relief is not effectively managed in conjunction with PD as a lot of medical professionals do not have enough knowledge about Parkinson’s and the fact that symptoms can vary greatly from patient to patient.

Yes. I get a pond and needles sends in both legs and feet, frequently at night or my legs will feel like they are burning and tingling. My niece told me it is called peripheral neuropathy and he sees many patients with Parkinson’s where this occurs and although not dangerous can
Become very aggressive and uncomfortable.
